Those of us with acne-prone skin know the constant battle between giving our skin moisture and coping with breakouts. Luckily, there are several tinted moisturizers on the market formulated to prevent acne-prone skin from breaking out. The added bonus of a tinted moisturizer is that it offers up coverage and moisture without the heaviness of traditional foundations, which can lead to clogged pores. We also love that many of these products have SPF because protecting your skin from harmful UVB/UVA rays is the number one way to prevent skin cancer as well as wrinkles and discoloration. If you’re looking for a lightweight formulation with skincare benefits as your everyday face product, a tinted moisturizer could be the answer.
If you’re looking for a matte formula, check out the oil-free version of the cult-favorite It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream. It gives the skin a poreless, natural-looking matte finish and is clinically tested to reduce shine for up to 12 hours. It’s also infused with charcoal to detoxify the skin and tea tree extract to combat blemishes alongside SPF 40 and anti-aging serum.
